POLK COUNTY, IOWA -- Two Minnesota roofers helped rescue a pregnant woman from a burning mini van in Iowa on Wednesday.

Jason Weisman and Sean Tierney came upon the crash while driving in Des Moines. The men had to go through the back of the van to reach the woman because the van was pinned between a truck and the median.

"I just looked up and I said, 'God, just give me a minute, just give me a minute and a half, just let me get her out of here,'" said Weismann.

The roofers also helped a semi driver out of a burning cab.

The pregnant woman is in serious condition.
